    City Arts & Lectures Extracting DNA: The Power to Restore Life A National Geographic emerging explorer, MacArthur Fellow and professor in the department of ecology and evolutionary biology at UC Santa Cruz, Beth Shapiro aims to better understand how populations and species change through time in response to changes in their habitat. Through her explorations of prehistoric DNA, Shapiro develops important new approaches for inferring the factors that shape the dynamics of species' populations. She is able to observe mammoths and dodos, witness the last ice age and study the eventual arrival of humans in North America. Her research with ancient DNA takes her on a journey through time that gives science and society a whole new view of our tumultuous past and a potentially life changing reality for our future. On April 8, 2014 Beth Shapiro appeared in conversation with Michael Krasny, host of KQED's Forum. He is also a professor of English at San Francisco State University and the author of "Spiritual Envy: an Agnostic's Quest" and "Off Mike: A Memoir of Talk Radio and Literary Life."

    Forum The Debate Over Part-Time Work On-call and part-time employment is on the rise.

That's prompting some cities like San Francisco to propose new protections for workers, such as extra pay and advance notice of shifts.

    Forum Bill Cosby on 50 Years of Comedy Generations of Americans grew up with Bill Cosby as the wise-cracking, eye-rolling but tender dad during "The Cosby Show's" eight-year run and years of repeats. Cosby had a rich and varied career before he became known as "America's Dad." His performances at San Francisco's legendary nightclub, hungry i, in the early '60s helped launch his standup career before he got his big break in 1965 playing an undercover agent in the TV series, "I Spy." Now he's 77 years old and still doing standup with his current tour, "Far from Finished." We talk to Cosby about his career as a comic, his new family comedy slated for 2015 and his thoughts on race and culture today.

    Radio Specials The Commonwealth Club: Climate One Nuclear Power: Meltdown or Revival? -- Three years after Fukushima, is nuclear power dead in the water? Or is it poised for revival due to the world's desperate need for carbon-free energy? Two U.S. nuclear plants are being shut down, but dozens of others have received a new lease on life from regulators who approved letting them run another decade or two. Nuclear power's biggest challenge comes from the glut of natural gas, which is undercutting both clean and dirty sources of electricity. Nuclear advocates say new technologies can deliver safe atomic power at competitive prices. Detractors say nuclear is propped up by a liability shield subsidized by taxpayers and that Fukushima proves it has unacceptable health and environmental risks.
